My GC 2410 has done jobs that push its limits before and breaking granite from this wall was just another challenge. I did succeed in pulling 4 attached pieces from the wall but this last one took a tooth out.

It looks like the tooth is welded. Does anyone have a source where I can order another tooth? btw, this little guy is amazing.

If it were mine, I'd just weld a piece of sharpened 1/4" plate on where it broke off. I would use the 6013 tempering rods they sell at TSC.

those look like they are replaceable, shank is welded on tooth slips over. tractor supply may have them.

When you get a replacement tooth make sure you get the lock pin as well. Most likely the lock pin worked itself out and you haven't actually broken anything.

Pix, check with your dealer or a Bobcat dealer. I know them as a "fabricated" tooth. The little (Woods) backhoe I had had them and the tooth covers you are looking for are not pinned on. They were held on by hammering the side of the cover into a small detent on the shank. Not that great of a set up, I tack welded mine on & would still loose them. What ever you find, the fit to the shank on the bucket is the most important.

Thanks for all your responses guys. It does now seem like the tooth slides on without a pin and I will replace it and look at a way to tack or pin it.

They might be the same on my MF backhoe. H&L 00 Weld on / crimp on. I replaced 4 on my Backhoe, I ordered and got them in 2 days.
